Aviation weather video tip: When flying IFR isn’t an option


Sometimes terrain, icing, lack of instrument rating or proper equipment can make flying on an Instrument Flight Plan (IFR) not an option. But that doesn’t mean you need to cancel a flight though just because there’s weather along the route or it’s not perfect VFR. Join Matt Guthmiller in a segment from Sporty’s new Aviation Weather Course – A Pilot’s Guide, to learn how to plan and fly in these conditions while remaining in VFR conditions from takeoff to touchdown.

Aviation Weather – A Pilot’s Guide is available on Sporty’s Pilot Training platform and includes online access, iPad/iPhone, Android, RokuTV and AppleTV apps.
